These pages will try and give some detail information to assist in
identifying and restoring Carlton cycles.
Please note - some of this information is a bit tentative. I have tried
to avoid wild guessing as much as possible. I would welcome correction
or confirmation and will update these pages with information supplied.

Other marques were also made by Carlton
The Worksop factory made cycles for over 20 different marques. Some
of them were quite hush-hush, as they did not want their customers to
know that the frames were made by Carlton and Gerald O'Donovan would
have their frames covered over if visitors were expected.
